Free WebDav server and remote calendar issues

Hey all,
If you're not able to get WebDav setup on one of your servers or its too 
much hassle, check out http://www.sharemation.com. They allow you to 
setup a free webdav account that works great. I've been using mine for a 
couple years now.

A couple weeks ago I finally started playing with the remote calendar 
stuff. I set up my Calendar to publish automatically to my sharemation 
account. Then, from my girlfriends computer subscribed to it. Worked 
like a charm except for a few things:

-around 20% of the time, I get an error like, file can't be found. Which 
I'm guessing is the result of a timeout because it works most of the time.

-If I have Alarm set for an event or task, the reminder pops up 
everytime I add or modify an event no matter how many times I 
acknowledge the reminder. Really annoying.

Are these known issues? Are there fixes?

Thanks for the tip. My host said he set up my server (lairo.com) to have 
WebDAv, but I'm nnot sure he did it right.

Could you please provide the steps to create a webdav calendar? The 
instruction on http://www.twilight-systems.com/flacco/mozcal/index.html 
may be outdated.

Wasn't this fixed a while ago. Are you using the latest version of 
Sunbird? ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/calendar/nightly/

You have to create yourself an account at Sharemation,
http://www.sharemation.com/xythoswfs/webui?action=login&subaction=newuser

They should then give you a directory (such as 
http://www.sharemation.com/~username) which you can use for webdav.

You then go into Calendar and select the Calendars tab. Right click on 
My Calendar (or whichever one you want to publish) and select Publish 
Entire Calendar. Give it your information,
Publishing URL http://www.sharemation.com/~oledave/Calendar.ics
UserName and Password and then push publish. The Publish button will 
change to Close when its done.

You should then be able to see the Calendar.ics file on your sharemation 
account. Subscribe to it from a different computer using the same settings.

Mozilla Calendar suddenly does not show remote calendar anymore
Hi, I'm using Mozilla Calendar (latest build 2004121719-cal, Linux) with a WebDAV server to show 2 remote calendars and one local calendar. Suddenly, one of the remote calendars' events completely stopped showing, while the other two calendars are still shown. Reloading the calendar doesn't help. Unchecking and checking again the calendar in the calendars list doesn't help. When I add a new appointment to the calendar, it is apparently added to the remote calendar (the progress icon turns for some time), but not shown.

Mozilla Calendar
I've recently started using Mozilla Calendar, and so far the features and user interface are almost exactly what I want... but (maybe) not quite. I use a hosted mail-server to keep my email in one central place - but access it from a number of different computers. IMAP is already configured and secured with a VPN, but I don't currently have a secured ftp service that I can access remotely (and using FTP is all I can find documented...) I notice the "Remote Server URL" option when creating new calendars... but I am unsure about the server configuration requireme...

Remote calendars with webdav
I'm trying to experiment with remote calendars. I've been following the following FAQ: http://www.twilight-systems.com/flacco/mozcal/mozcal-webdav.html It shows that when you subscribe or publish to a remote cal, you need to specify the URL and a user-id and password. My problem is that there are no textboxes for the user-id or password in either the subscribe or publish dialog boxes displayed by calendar. I'm using the Thunderbird extension version and the build is 2005/01/11. I've got it working without a user-id and password, but I'd like to impl...
